Vinnie Besasie


Featured | Bio


Well this is unfair because I’m Sicilian, and I make a much better impression in person than I do through a web site bio. You can’t see my hands as you read this, so how could  you possibly understand what I am talking about? I will do my best given this handicap. The norm is making sure I have populated this with SEO friendly phrases like “adept storyteller”, and “Emmy award-winning,” but I’m from the Midwest and any semblance of bragging is frowned upon. For those of you who like the details: I am a commercial director with an extensive range of genre and technique, from highly-stylized pieces, to drama and comedy, with a focus on production value throughout. I’ve worked nationally and abroad for the last two decades after having graduated with honors with a BFA in Film.  The bottom line is that I am passionate about visualizing stories and capturing the magic in cinematic moments— moments that need to be expressed memorably and phrased with careful thought as to how the narrative speaks to, connects with, and motivates the audience. For me that emotional connection is the most important part of visual storytelling. Vinnie's clients include: Toyota, HBO, BBC, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Columbia Pictures, Kohl’s, Harry & David, Miller Coors, Northwestern Mutual, ESPN.
